What if I miss the filing or payment due date?

If you fail to submit your Quarterly License Report AND pay your Quarterly License Fees by the report due date in the table above, you will be charged a late fee. A late fee of $25 per day will be assessed for each day you are late, up to 30 days. For example, if you are one day late in submitting your Quarterly License Report, you will be assessed a $25 late fee. If you are 30 days late, you will be assessed a $750 late fee. After 30 days, administrative action may also be taken against your license.

How do I calculate prizes paid?

Prizes Paid: The total number of cash prizes paid out and the value of all merchandise awarded. If purchased, the value is the cost to the licensee. If donated, see "Donated Prizes" below. (Note: Merchandise donated or purchased for prizes, but not awarded, should NOT be included on this report.)

Donated Prizes: If prizes were donated to the organization, estimate the fair market value of the items on the date they were received as donations. If ALL awarded prizes were donated, "Prizes Paid" and "Donated Prizes" would be the same.

The form will not let me enter cents

Our rates lend themselves to fractional dollars, inviting the need to round to whole dollars. The Quarterly License Report does not accommodate reporting cents, so you must round your Quarterly License Fee to the nearest whole dollar as follows:

$0.50 or less – Round Down

$0.51 or more – Round Up to the nearest whole dollar
